Dan Joseph: United Television Champion

United Television Champion Dan Joseph
“Dan the Man! Dan the Man!” fans at the Oceanview Pavilion chant lovingly at the man who has captured their hearts as well as the United Television Championship. That is the one and only Dan Joseph. With a grin on his face, the native of Buffalo, New York, steps into the ring ready to lock horns with anyone looking for a title shot. A True Hollywood Story.
As the first graduate of the United Wrestling Network International WrestleCenter, Dan had big shoes to fill. The rookie joined forces with experienced CWFH wrestler Todd Chandler to form the dance-crazed team Footloose. The duo was popular with fans, but fell short of championship aspirations. After Chandler and Dan parted ways, Joseph was recruited by Coach Flexo to join PAC 3. As a proven super-athlete, Joseph fit in well with Flexo’s team of like-minded jocks Dicky Mayer and Dylan Bostic. The unit was a success, becoming the longest-reigning United World Tag Team Champions at the time. It was obvious that Dan was breakout star of the bunch, now set to prove himself in singles competition.

Following a promising start in the Singles Division, Dan Joseph suffered an injury that sidelined him for many months. Doctors diagnosed him with a torn ACL with partial tears in his meniscus and medial meniscus. Where most wrestlers saw a disadvantage, Dan saw an opportunity. Possesing a talent for providing colorful descriptions of the world around him, Dan Jospeh found a new home at the commentary table. On both Championship Wrestling from Hollywood and Championship Wrestling from Arizona, Joseph made fans hang on his every word thorugh true sports analysis and undeniable charm. Before long, fans clammored for his return to the ring and Dan was happy to oblige.

The surgically repaired Dan Joseph attacked the United Singles Division like a man on fire. He began putting down opponents like Ty Matthews and Ray Rosas on his quest to prove himself as a bonafide commodity in the squared circle. There was one prize that Dan had his eyes on. One that he hadn’t challenged for in nearly five years: the United Television Championship. The man sitting on the television throne was one of the most decorated men in the United Wrestling Network, Royce Isaacs. UnitedWrestlingTV.com caught up with Dan Joseph to see just how he beat the captain of Jamie Iovine’s Upper Class to become Television Champion.

“Well I pinned him is how I became champion,” banters Joseph, “But if you’re asking how I got there, it took everything I had and more. Royce is a big boy and he throws hands as hard as anybody I’ve been in the ring with. I had to dig deep to places I wasn’t sure I had. It took everything in me and more to win the title and that’s what I’ll give every time to keep it.”
The title win was not a fluke victory and holding the United Television Championship is something that Dan takes very seriously. His powerslams will land, even if his puns do not. Dad jokes aside, Dan Joseph is the man to beat on television.

United World Tag Team Champions Feel “Static”

2019 was a rising year for fan favorite Adrian Quest a.k.a. “Young Fuego.” The fiery competitor with a world of potential had several huge matchups, including facing Bateman in the 2019 PP3 Finals, taking then Heritage Champion “Uptown” Andy Brown to the limit in a breathtaking title bout, and finally capturing the United Television Title only for it to be taken away by Nikko Marquez. Despite his best efforts, frustration bled through and fans began to wonder if Adrian Quest could win the “big one.” On a recent episode of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Quest described that he felt leftover, static, and deserted by people who he thought had his back.

When tasked with choosing a partner to challenge the United World Tag Team Champions, Quest smartly picked one of the most decorated contenders in the United Wrestling Network. “Uptown” Andy Brown is a former Hollywood Heritage Champion, 2018 Red Carpet Rumble Winner, and has competed in more television Main Events in the last eighteen months than any other active member of the roster. With a certifiable ringer in his corner, Adrian set the challenge to the Soul Burners, determined to take their titles by any means necessary. And we mean by any means necessary. What happened next, you’ll have to see to believe.

The newly crowned United World Tag Team Champions have now joined up with Arizona State Champion and 2020 PP3 Cup Bearer Ray Rosas. The trio, collectively going by the moniker “STATIC,” have shown that a change in tune is just what they needed to move their careers forward. But what approach will Quest and Brown take for their upcoming title defenses? Take a look at this comment from STATIC:

Next Television Title Bout Announced

“When I won the United Television Title for the fourth time, I solidified myself as THE BEST. But five? That is legendary greatness,” declares Scorpio Sky, still riding high off his record-breaking fifth title reign as Television Champion. Sky recently won the title in an impromptu match following a hard hitting bout between Royce Isaacs and Bateman. Following a well placed kick to the crotch with the referee’s back turned, Sky would once again call himself United Television Champion. But this title victory wasn’t going to sit quietly with former champions.

“After Bateman and I took each other neck-and-neck down the line, Sky could have moonwalked into the ring in street clothes and taken the TV title,” explains Royce Isaacs. “That’s not me though. That’s not what I want. Royce Isaacs wants Scorpio Sky at his best. I want him well rested, well fed, with a full training camp. I want no excuses.” Isaacs has been adamant as of late about winning his matches honestly, with no outside help or rule breaking. Since putting down tough opponents like Ranchero Rogelio in recent weeks, Royce has legitimate claim to be a title contender. But is Royce more deserving than former Champion Bateman, who has yet to receive his rematch?

After considering these arguments, Nikko Marquez decided to sanction a Triple Threat Match for the United Television Championship at Championship Wrestling from Hollywood‘s Red Carpet Rumble on August 18th. This kind of bout puts Scorpio Sky at a sizable disadvantage. Not only does he have to defend his title against two opponents at once, but Sky does not even have to be involved with the decision to lose the Television Championship. Never before has Sky had so much to lose in such unpredictable circumstances and must prepare himself mentally in order to keep what he holds dear.

Possibly the most desperate man in this contest is Bateman, who not only lost his TV Title to Scorpio Sky under dubious conditions, but also has lost his valet Sarah Wolfe due to the influence of the Upper Class. UnitedWrestlingTV.com caught up with Bateman to see which of his opponents at the Red Carpet Rumble is his main target.

” The focus is Scorpio Sky. I’ll do whatever I need to do to get my hands on him,” grumbles Bateman. “And Royce, with his rosy cheeks and his nose in the air all these months has forgotten one thing. You walk around with your nose in the air long enough, someone’s gunna come along and break it.”

United Television Champion Scorpio Sky isn’t phased by the comments of his opponents. As he heads into the Red Carpet Rumble on August 18th at the Oceanview Pavilion, Sky has these words to offer. “Anybody that wants to try and come take it from me, I invite you to do so. We all know how it’s going to end. Different opponent, same result. Get used to greatness.”

New United World Tag Team Champions Crowned

At the July 28th Championship Wrestling from Hollywood Television Event, the Reno SCUM defended their United World Tag Team Championships against the formidable team of Ryan Taylor and Tomaste, better known as the Soul Burners. After being involved in several multi-team title matches, Taylor and Tomaste had been preparing for a direct shot at the Champs for months. What was set to be an exciting contest already, was made more exciting before the bell even rang with the appearance of former Tag Team Champions.

ROCKNES Monsters have had a bone to pick with Thornstowe and Luster since they were mysteriously attacked backstage months ago. The reappearance of VERMIN brought a red herring to the trail, but before long YUMA and BHK learned the truth about the United World Tag Team Champions. With intergalactic injustice rampant, the ROCKNES Monsters opted to get involved with the bout on July 28th before it even began. CWFH officials kept the teams apart, but this distraction may have been the opening that the Soul Burners needed.

Taylor and Tomaste have had a stop and go run at the United tag team division since joining forces last year. Ryan Taylor, a former tag champion himself with Joey Ryan, has been trying to get back to the gold since 2017. An unlucky teaming with Dicky Mayer led him to finding energy with Tomaste unlike any partner he has had to date. Tomaste has suffered injuries keeping him out of action for different lengths of time over the last calendar year. Any amount of momentum gained by the Soul Burners was cut off with these lapses in active competition. With both men healthy and on the same page, Taylor and Tomaste were able to capitalize on the momentary lack of focus from Adam Thornstowe and Luster the Legend to capture the United World Tag Team Championship on July 28th. The staff at UnitedWrestlingTV.com congratulate the Soul Burners on their win and looks forward to future defenses.
